Synopsis: [Library Edition Audiobook CD in Vinyl case.]

[Read by Stefan Rudnicki]

Winner of the 2004 Lincoln Prize

As a defender of national unity, a leader in war, and the emancipator of slaves, Abraham Lincoln lays ample claim to being the greatest of our presidents. This extraordinary biography by one of the most highly regarded historians on the subject examines Lincoln both as a rising politician and as president.

While pursuing office, Lincoln drew strength from public opinion and from the machinery of his party. As a wartime president, he recognized the limits as well as the possibilities of power. In his struggle to end slavery, he found allies in the churches, their humanitarian agencies, and the volunteer Union Army.

In illuminating the political talents that went hand in hand with a large and serious moral purpose, Carwardine gives us a fresh, important portrait of the incomparable Abraham Lincoln.

From the Publisher: The prestigious Lincoln Prize for outstanding achievement, the largest such prize offered in the field of American history, has been awarded to Richard Carwardine, Oxford University, for this analytical biography of Abraham Lincoln. Leader of the anti-slavery Republican coalition and the wartime Union, Abraham Lincoln has become a model of a particular kind of democratic politician who led rather than followed. The latest volume in the very successful Profiles in Power series tells the story of a wartime leader who had to grapple with issues of responsibility, rights and nationalism. Richard J. Carwardine examines Lincoln's rise to power and his achievements as US president. The book explores the wider sources of Lincoln's authority and skills in embracing a broad range of elements within the Republican party. In particular, it looks at Lincoln's shrewd relationship with evangelical Protestantism. His ability to harness and channel the power of the Protestant constituency was key to his winning the presidency and rallying support behind his national and emancipatory vision. For those interested in Lincoln, the Presidency and the Civil War. The Lincoln Prize has been in existence for 14 years and is presented awarded annually by the Lincoln and Soldiers Institute at Gettysburg College.
